3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Decent hotel but from the other reviews we were expecting a bit more. Two observations we would make - beds and pillows are ROCK HARD! Room decor not particularly attractive. Breakfast quite basic, no hot option (ok, I know it's on the continent...), not even a toaster! Location acceptable.

Dear Vincent, Thanks for your message. Great review! The weather is getting warmer, and we started to open the terrace for breakfast. Plants are starting to flower here and the Springtime makes a lovely period to visit Florence and Italy. Francesco Bini More

My mother and I stayed at this hotel and had a great experience. Delicious breakfast, lovely courtyard/terrace, free wifi. Very reasonable rates, I would definitely stay here again. Well within walking distance to shopping, the Duomo, tons of cafes, bars, etc. Highly recommended!

We were immediately impressed with the Medici's elegant but comfortable lobby. This boutique hotel is close to the pulse of Florence. It is immaculate from the lobby to our spacious garden rooms which had contemporary finishes but very comfortable beds and bedding. The breakfast was a wonderful way to start the day in a charming setting with friendly attentive servers... More

The hotel is really in a great spot. It was close to a bunch of good restaurants and the train station. You really can walk everywhere from our Hotel. Its near the Duormo which is really nice. The rooms were really big and comfortable. We probably could have fit a family of 4 in our room. We even had an... More

...I confess I've stayed here before, normally I make a point of not booking the same hotel twice - this allows me to explore a different district on the next visit / with most other 'City Visits' this makes sense - but not for a visit to Florence... if like me you are flying into Pisa and then taking the...

This review is long overdue. We stayed here with friends in April, 2014. The hotel is in the perfect location, we walked everywhere, and found a bike shop just around the corner to rent bikes for one of the days. The hotel staff and management were excellent and helped us arrange transportation with Tuscany Car Tours for a wine tour.... More

What a great surprise. Orto de Medici is in historians Florence, and 10 minutes walking from all the major attractions. When you arrive, and walk through the garden to the rooms building, and then open the door to your room, what a surprise! A great room, modern and a wonderful bathroom. Staff is nice and helpful (even though their English... More

We stayed here with friends for three nights, because we were celebrating we were given 2 free upgrades which was fantastic, our room in particular was beautiful which I appreciated, but unfortunately one couple were not upgraded and their room was not very nice at all, it was very worn and in dire need of an update. Breakfast was ok,... More

Dear Lisa, Free upgrading is subject to availability, and it is a gift we love to offer to our guests, as soon as there are available rooms. Usually we require a little extra at check-in to upgrade, but this is also subject to availability on the date. You booking was for all Classic Rooms, so even the non upgraded room... More
